My girls have a ltitle piggy bank that their aunt bought them when she was in Las Vegas. They have $50.01 in there and it's now time for a bigger one. I have been putting change in there everytime me or DH have any and it's added up pretty fast. I plan on wrapping up what I can and taking it to deposit in their bank account. I opened up a saving account for both of them and so glad that I did.

That's awesome!  It's amazing how fast loose change can add up.  If you are talking about wrapping them up in coin wrappers, the bank will break them open and dump the coins in their coin counter anyway.  Might save you time and money if you just take it up in a jar, bag, whatever.  =)  Just saying that because I did that once only to watch them tear apart my work in front of me.  =/  LOL.

Yes, it does add up fast. Our bank doesn't have one of the coin counters. It's a small bank inside of the Wal-Mart.

Its crazy how much change adds up. We save ours in big casino cups. Once a year we count and wrap it and dh trades the rolls in at his work for bills. We usually have anywhere between $150-$200 and we put it towards vacation stuff.
